Hi All :wave1:
We have finally finished our "build" :setup:
It has taken 4 months of planning, replanning, reassessing, rearranging and building but we have finally done it :thumbleft: :thumbright:

Our new IBC system now comprises 2 separate systems :
700lt FT with 5 GBs (1900lt approx filtration) and 700lt FT with 4 GBs (1100lt approx filtration) We screened, washed and rinsed 4 trailer loads of pea gravel to fill the new GBs which are extra deep (being halved IBCs). All plumbing is working well and the GBs are planted out with various plants and seeds.

Yesterday we did have an HSM. We woke after rough weather to find that we'd had a power blackout through the night and the Left FT only had 150lt water left. The SP were not to happy about this situation. :cry:
Needless to say, we now have to source some blue barrells for overflow storage in the near future. The plan will be to run CF and incase of power failure, plumb up an overflow that can be pumped back when power is restored.

Also, due to having vertically challenged members of the family, a board walk has been incorporated into the design.

We are proud to share our IBC upsize.
Pics to follow
